                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hi Erinika!

Me Fitin' Bull.

Me Not Smart Bull.

Me Dum Bull.

Duelmaster of Erinika

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ERINIKA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  WORLDWIDE GORE turned their 3-2-0 turn 
into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see EVE win a fight and 
gain 16 points, terribly.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as MRALISSA 
LOON takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm 
not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know 
what's new, don't you, ERINIKA?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  THE FLYING FISHES, I suppose you'll be glad to know 
you were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  
And it looks like WORLDWIDE GORE avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of 
would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  YILDOR ZANE was challenged more times this 
turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have 
PIRANHA in a challenge, going down 13 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought 
PIRANHA showed great skill and promise when he was beat by NEW GUINEA PIG.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Frisbee -- I figured you'd hover around for a while, but I was wondering if you'd
ever fall to the ground. -- Dum Bull

Mralissa Loon -- Are you sure you couldn't spare me a win.  I'd like to get out of
here someday too.  Congrats on your departure. -- Stub Bull

Adam -- For some reason, you remind me of a FI I once knew.  Not sure why. -- Griffon

Buried Treasure -- Oops, we don't like to cut our revenue stream like that -- R.S.I.

Wonton Not Now -- Your menu is ... -- F.U.B.A.R.

Yildor Zane -- Perhaps you would have been distracted by some Belgian Chocolates. --
Belgian Waffle

Raemnod Purr -- You remind me of a old piece of feline carrion. -- Turkey Vulture

Dum Bull -- You're too dum to even fall down when you take a beating like the one I
gave you. -- Frisbee

RSI -- I think you should lose gracefully to my Frisbee next turn to make up for that
kill. -- Assur

Fubar -- I'd heard that was why they called it that, but after hearing your toilet
mouth, I'm glad for the nickname. -- Wonton Not Now

Three-two?  We're impressed with ourselves!  Of course, with me graduating, keeping
up the standard will be harder.  My teammates probably won't be able to. -- Mralissa
Loon

That was unnecessarily rude. -- Yildor Zane
P.S.  And the Belgian Waffle was delicious.
